Soil stockpile site update – New operation hours effective May 6

(Fort McMurray, AB – May 2, 2019) – Effective Monday, May 6, operation dates and times for the soil stockpiling site in Abram’s Land will be changing. 

Starting May 6, the new hours of operation will be on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m.  

As per the current system, the soil stockpiling site will continue to be closed on statutory holidays that fall on days of regular operation. 

The stockpile site is located at the rear southwest corner of Abrams Land and can be accessed on the west side of Thickwood Boulevard across from Dickins Drive. Please remember that this soil stockpiling site is for rebuild properties only; so this site will only allow soil delivery or withdrawal for rebuild properties following the 2016 wildfire.

For all other soil disposal services from outside of wildfire-damaged properties must be taken to the Regional Landfill located approximately 8.5 kilometres south of Fort McMurray on Highway 63, where it will be subject to the disposal guidelines set out in the Utility Rates Bylaw No. 10/001
